What is SD WAN?

Official Wikipedia Definition:

The software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) is a specific application of software-defined networking (SDN) technology applied to WAN connections, which are used to connect enterprise networks – including branch offices and data centers – over large geographic distances.

Benefits of SD WAN

Because the WAN is virtualized, it allows businesses to take advantage of any data connection available including 3G, 4G LTE, 5G, MPLS, T1, Ethernet, Serial, Cable, DSL or Wi-Fi.

The various SD WAN solutions can include a lot of the functionality available through Firewalls, so depending on the Client's needs, could alleviate the high cost of additional equipment. However, there is flexibility with most to allow the business to continue to manage its own firewall. This is important particularly with businesses who have to meet HIPAA, PCI and other specific compliances.

One of the most important advantages of SD-WAN is that it can provide intelligent path control that steers traffic based on application. This traffic-forwarding capability can be set in place at the centralized controller level and then pushed out to all SD-WAN devices. Policies can be based on IP addresses, application profiles, port number, quality-of-service markings, time of day, or any other number of variables.

Provisioning is dramatically easier as SD-WAN enables businesses to send SD-WAN devices to branches un-configured anywhere in the world. Once plugged in, the device will download its policy, crypto certificate and keys, and automatically register the site, devices, etc. This information is now instantly available within the control portal available with most offerings instantly!
